Black History Month: Identity Through Expression Fund


BASS created the "Identity Through Expression" fund in Bright Funds to offer financial support to vital nonprofits supporting the community. Each organization was carefully selected to represent the multitude of voices within the Arts community. Each organization contributes to a collective narrative that celebrates the richness of heritage, fosters unity, and amplifies stories that might otherwise go unheard.
